Featured Shop: Pinkadot Tots

***** This giveaway is now closed*****

This week’s featured shop is all about the little girl in your life. Pinkadot Tots carries precious hair accessories for your princess and is owned by the sweetest mom, Callie. And how cute is the shop name?!?!
Here is what Callie, the owner of Pinkadot Tots, has to say about herself:
"Pinkadot Tots was created when I became frustrated with extremely high prices for my daughters must have hair accessories. I was looking to make high end products without the high end prices. I'm always looking for new trends and finding the best and most fashionable products available. Almost all of my products are handmade by me. I am originally from TEXAS so I L-O-V-E over the top bows and flowers, the bigger the better!!!"


Pinkadot Tots has a great tutorial to share with us too! Check out these precious little bows…they are so easy to make!
